Django 1.2.1 Now Available

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

Django 1.2.1 is now available for ordering here at Libre Hosting.

Simply select “Django 1.2.1″ from the dropdowns when you place your order –

Your VM will be set up to sync to trunk, to allow you to keep up-to-date – easiest way to keep up on point releases and bugfixes.

As always, Satchmo, and any other Django plugins you prefer, are available on request – just put your preferences in the “Notes” field when you place your order.


Satchmo 0.9-trunk Now Available

satchmo-frontDevelopment Version

We are proud to announce that we now support and can install the latest trunk-version (0.9) of Satchmo, installed from Mercurial (aka “hg” – get it?!).

Since it’s installed directly from the VCS, and symlinked into the python path, this allows for updates to the source tree anytime – in other words, instant upgrades (and downgrade, if a problem is encountered!) anytime (depending on your VCS).

Django, and other plugins, are installed this same way, as always – we have done it this way since 2007.

Here is a quick intro on how it’s done – just indicate you want us to install Satchmo in the “notes” field when you place your order, and we’ll get it done for you.


Django 1.1, 1.02, 0.96.3 versions now available

Wednesday, January 7th, 2009

We are pleased to announce that we now have three Django versions available for hosting in any of our plans –


  1. Although 1.1 is not yet officially released, trunk is always pretty stable – as projects go, the Django team can be relied upon to keep the trunk tree extremely reliable – we run trunk in production, for example.  For new projects, we recommend this option.
  2. Legacy 0.96.3 is the last release before the 1.0 release which broke backward compatibility – it includes the older admin interface (with nested Admin classes), and the older Signals implementation – which provide a migration hurdle for many production environments – we have several customers and friends still running 0.96.3 until they address these migration issues.  We can also help with this, if you need us.
  3. The official released version, 1.02, is stable, and well-tested.  We recommend this option for those conservative production environments that have full-blown separated test/staging and developent envoironments as well.

As always, if you need a specific legacy version (or a specific trunk svn release for that matter, or release-by-date) we will be happy to install it from svn on request, just plce your request in the “notes” field when you place your order.

We will also happily install any Django packages you desire, as well, on request – try the lists at Django Pluggables and Django Search. Google Code also has a good number of Django-related projects hosted there.

And remember, if you need design, development, or site setup assistance, we are always here to help.


Now on Django 1.0b and Satchmo 0.8pre

Monday, August 25th, 2008

django-logo-positiveOK, after some serious work and refactoring, we are now up and running on Django 1.0b and Satchmo 0.8pre, as of today –

The new shop and Django features are quite impressive, and include many things we used to have to do ourselves.

You will see us gradually putting our Satchmo eCommerce ‘shop’ back together over the next few weeks to be back up to full functionality.

As always, you may reach us for sales and support via email.


Now Upgrading to Satchmo 0.7!

Sunday, July 6th, 2008

Please pardon our dust (please order by email or phone!) as we reimplement portions of our eCommerce engine to use the new updated Satchmo Release, 0.7 (we are using SVN trunk).

Previously, we were on the Satchmo 0.6 release (and we implemented the TrustCommerce payment engine for the project, for that release).

We hope to have the eCommerce signup capability back up and fully functional within a short time.

In the meantime, we can accept your orders and support emails through our usual email and phone channels.
